Visor / Glasses misting up

I'm new to riding (CBT in August 11) so this is my 1st time in the colder weather.

I have a Nitro Helmet which is pinlocked (?) from factory,the issue i have is that i have to ride with the visor slightly open because if i dont then either the visor or my glasses mist up really bad, is there anything i can do / buy to stop this happening?

Hi

Get a bar of soap rub the dry soap on your glasses / visor, rub in and then polish off with a clean dry clothe, also works on bathroom mirrors etc.

If your visor is misting up, then you DO NOT have a pinlock insert in.

Try using bob heath visor spray to stop your glasses misting up.

properly fitter pinlock will not mist

maybe your nitro visor is "pinlock ready", meaning it has two little plugged holes waiting for an optional extra "pinlock insert".  I put an Oxford one in my lads Aikido and it's great, cost about £15. Read and re-read fitting instructions and take care 1st time..


Soapy anti fog treatments used to work for me for a few days at a time until I moved to Sharks with anti-fog visors.

Glasses seem to be an issue for some, I ride pretty much all year every day but I'm lucky to be able to wear contact lenses instead.

But that won't stop your glasses steaming up.
